Winfield - Worsted

3 items left

We’ve replaced our discontinued Staccato worsted weight with Winfield, a lofty 2-ply with great stitch definition. This yarn is 100% Canadian, made with a dorset-base down type wool sourced from Ontario, spun in New Brunswick, and hand-dyed in our Montreal studio. Winfield has a beautifully “toothy” texture and comes in 16 rich and vibrant shades, making it a perfect choice for colourwork.

You can read more about the origins of this yarn here.

Dyed to order skeins will ship within 3 weeks of order date.


Winfield is eligible for our tiered sweater quantity discounts. Use one of the following codes at checkout to receive your discount:

  • SWEATER10 for 10% off 5 skeins or more
  • SWEATER15 for 15% off 7 skeins or more
  • SWEATER20 for 20% off 10 skeins or more

*Cannot be combined with another discount code, but free shipping to US and Canada on orders over $150 still applies

Featured Pattern: Frost and Twilight Mitts

Two pairs of mittens, adult pair is dark blue with natural contrast, child's pair has colours reversed

Originally designed in our Staccato yarn, this mitten pattern works beautifully with Winfield. They are a quick knit and if you reverse the colours you should be able to get at least two pairs of mittens out of two skeins of Winfield.

Circle R Livestock: A Family Farm

Sheep in barn at Circle R Livestock

One of our big goals for Sweet Paprika this year was to source a new line of Canadian wool yarns. We started contacting farms and mills last January, researching options, connecting with farmers, and collecting samples. Eventually we settled on working with wool from Circle R Livestock, a family farm in southern Ontario operated by Romy and Ryan Schill and their children.
